  1. Police failing to grasp realty.
  2. After sustained period of cuts, the APCC fears funding shortfall may lead to rise in crime, hurting police and state legitimacy https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/oct/29/england-and-wales-police-in-need-of-13bn-to-tackle-and-terrorism?CMP=twt_gu
  3. Parsons Green: Explosion reported on London Tube train 15 September 2017 From the section UK Image copyright Twitter/@rrigs Emergency services are at the scene of a reported explosion on a District Line Underground train in south-west London. A picture on social media showed a white bucket inside a supermarket bag, but does not appear to show extensive damage in the carriage. Witnesses described seeing at least one passenger with facial injuries. Others have
  4. After reading the article about the London bridge incident where an officer used only his baton in this against an attacker, maybe its time to start carrying some sort of ready to go small side arm. Probably wouldn't hurt. Would not rely on a taser though.
  5. I wasn't sure about starting a new topic to be honest but thought this touched on general issues within Policing rather than the specific debates from today re arming etc. Although he is not a current officer I felt that it's quite refreshing to see such frank honesty about the state of Policing and resource levels. Interesting tone in the interview where Peter Kirkham actually says the government are ''lying'' Not sure if other people had seen this earlier ?
  6. A device which exploded in Strabane, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland has been described as an attempt to kill police. A device exploded Tuesday at around 2030hrs in close proximity to officers on patrol. "They" have not gone away unfortunately. BBC News NI: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-39350435
  7. Terror review suggests London police forces should merge By Nick Beake Home Affairs Correspondent, BBC News 28 October 2016 London Armed Response Vehicle (ARV) officers during a Marauding Terrorist Firearms Attack Training exercise Image caption The review makes a total of 127 recommendations A major review of London's ability to deal with a terror attack has suggested the three police forces serving the capital could be merged. Lord Harris of Haringey said the Home Office should consider combining the Met Police, the City of London Police and th

Looks like the gate has been opened and these attacks are becoming more spor
  9. A man on trial for stabbing a musician at Leytonstone Tube station "for Syria" said he was being followed by “people from MI5 and MI6.” A jury at the Old Bailey were shown CCTV footage of Muhiddin Mire, 30, of Sansom Road, Leytonstone, seize Lyle Zimmerman, 56, from behind, at the ticket office on December 5, last year. After the attack, when Mire was finally subdued by police, a shocked eyewitness called out, “You ain’t no Muslim, bruv,” – words that went viral on the internet. After his attack on Mr Zimmerman, Mire left the ticket hall and made his way to the street, where he
  10. Over the past few days there have been a number of security alerts and finds. DR activity is expected to continue with the 100yr anniversary of the 1916 Easter Uprising.

  11. January 17, 2016 4:40 pm Police use new tactic to fight terror threat in City of London Conor Sullivan Waiting to meet City of London police officials on Blackfriars Bridge to hear about a new crime-fighting technique, the FT stops to jot down a few notes. Soon enough a police officer, sporting an assault rifle, appears to ask why exactly this reporter is taking notes. This, it turns out, was an unwitting example of Project Servator at work — a new tactic to make life difficult for terrorists doing their homework, or “hostile reconnaissance” as the police descri
  12. A big boost to the number of armed police in London will help guard key buildings and other areas thought to be at risk of a terrorist gun attack. Scotland Yard is set to announce that it will increase the number of trained firearms officers by a third to allow it to double the number of police carrying weapons on the streets on any given day. http://news.sky.com/story/1622096/met-police-to-double-armed-officers-on-patrol
  13. "The Isis papers: leaked documents show how Isis is building its state" http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/dec/07/leaked-isis-document-reveals-plan-building-state-syria Interesting article that reveals a 'manual for statehood' that ISIS have drafted as part of forming their state. The caliphate is creating bureaucracy for a whole range of issues relating from education through to public health. They even have rules that govern street trading. ISIS shouldn't be underestimated. They are building a state. And they are doing it in a very sophis
  14. An unexpected but welcome ally in the fight against further cuts. The MCB fears police officers who have developed a rapport with Muslim communities over time will be replaced by anti-terror specialists who are parachuted in. Photograph: Alamy Britain’s largest Muslim group has warned that big cuts to the police planned by the Conservative government risks damaging the fight against terrorism. The Muslim Council of Britain has previously been critical of police actions and has been branded by some as supporting extremism, which it strongly denie
  15. Police cuts expected to be announced in next week's Spending Review may "reduce very significantly" the UK's ability to respond to a Paris-style attack, Home Secretary Theresa May has been warned. The advisory comes in a restricted document prepared for Mrs May by one of the UK's most senior police officers. It says the ability to mobilise large numbers of officers would "reduce very significantly across the country". The Home Office said it would not comment on a leaked document. The BBC has seen key paragraphs of the document, Implications of the Paris Attack for UK Polic

At least one man opened fire with an automatic gun at the Petit Cambodge restaurant in the 11th district. Liberation newspaper reports four deaths. It also reports shootings near the Bataclan arts centre. Three explosions are also reported outside a bar near the Stade de France, where France were hosting Germany.

  18. Shift: Friday Night Time Economy Rank: Special Constable Length of Service: 3 years Planned duty: 1900-0300 Due to lots of aid across boroughs in the MPS I found myself in Westminster on a recent Friday, where 125 Specials were deployed to police the night time economy. Unfortunately a slightly shirt shift as I only booked on last minute and had to be up early the following day. 1900 - Arrive at local nick, pick up a car and head into central picking up a mate I'd be working with that night enroute. Our tasking was to provide media support for the evening and generate as much activity we could
  19. Cuba Solidarity Campaign welcomes apology for what police describe as ‘regrettable error’ in costume choice for actor in simulated terrorist attack The Metropolitan police have apologised unreservedly for dressing one of their “terrorists” in a Cuban flag T-shirt during the recent Operation Strong Tower simulation of a terrorist attack in London. Complaints were made to the police after the officer, who was also wearing a balaclava and carrying a weapon, was shown on national television on 1 July. Maxine de Brunner, the Met’s deputy assistant commissioner, has written to the Cuba Solidari
  20. French defence ministry is to review security at all arms depots after explosives, grenades and detonators stolen from a military base in Miramas, southern France France is to review security at all of its munitions depots after 40 grenades, 180 detonators and plastic explosives were stolen from a major base in southern France. "Very well informed" thieves broke into the Miramas arms depot northwest of Marseille, southern France, in the early hours of Monday after cutting through two wire fences, according to judicial sources. The Marseille prosecutor has launched an inquiry into “theft vi
  21. For all the rhetoric that the West will stand united and will smash ISIS, I just found out that an Independence Day event has been cancelled at a US air base on UK soil. The Red Arrows, due to perform, have themselves cancelled. Of course you can look at this two ways: cancel and ISIS have achieved what they want. Let it go ahead with some trouble and - well, we all know the fallout from that. But given this - have ISIS won? Should the event have gone ahead with extra security to thumb noses at these terrorists? Link
  22. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/jun/30/police-conduct-londons-largest-ever-terror-attack-training-exercise Weird timings if you ask me. I know this exercise has been months in the planning for an active shooter scenario but the fact that it comes just a couple of days after a shooting (albeit in a foreign country) that left many Brits dead means that its especially relevant. I feel for the guys in all that kit though. some of the best pics
  23. Source Well then, that makes a difference from the "police should have known and stopped them even though we didn't" narrative. Good to see Mr Vaz is getting involved too.
